I have read that I need to be careful of gluten residue, so does that mean I have to replace all my cookwear? Or will a good washing do? I know I will have to replace my toaster. I have also read that I should not bake gluten items in a bread maker and then use it for gluten-free baked goods. Does anyone have advise?

Also, does anyone recommend any specific brand of bread maker? What should I look for?

Hi I was diagnosed two weeks ago and I had the same question. My sister-in-laws mom is celiac and has had it for many years. She told me to be sure and bleach my bread pan for my bread machine and any other pans I have used to cook or bake gluten containing foods. She recommended that I have separate pans for gluten-free baking and cooking. She also recommended using glass baking dishes. Cast iron must be replaced. She said as the food cooks it gets cooked into the pans and can cause contamination. Hope this helps.

Anything stainless steel or glass should be okay, as long as it is washed throughly and a dishwasher is good for this since it generally uses a much higher temp water than we can stand with sink washing.

Teflon and plastic utensils will absorb some of the gluten and then release the particles the next time you cook, so those need to be replaced and kept gluten free. I have different colored ones so my husband (who is not gluten-free) knows which ones are his and the strickly gluten-free pans are for me and the kids. Same with the cooking utensils. His are blue and mine are black. I also keep them separate when washing the dishes. His gluten dishes are washed first, then the water is changed in the sink and I wash my gluten-free dishes.

Cherbear is right about the cast iron, too. Same goes for stoneware bakeware.

It is not as bad as it seems. Just be patient with yourself. And before you replace your bread machine, try some recipes without one. Most gluten-free breads come out better when cooked in the oven. They are not like gluten breads that need a lot of kneeding and rising. They can usually be mixed by hand, set for one rising and then baked. Most machines don't have a setting for this and take much longer than it would take to do it the old fashioned way in the oven! :) Give it a try. You could use the money to buy more gluten-free foods, instead of a new machine.

God bless,

Hi All

The Breadman breadmachine (can run from $80-99 depending on store and sale) can be programed to mix, knead once and rise once. (Not all bread machines can be programmed like this. )Then you have to stop the machine before it begins the baking cycle. This is because the regular white bread setting doesn't bake at 375, it stops at 350 - (I use gluten free pantry bread mix & it calls for oven temp of 375). So, I stop the machine after the rise of the bread and then set machine on Bake Only at 375 for the 47 minutes it takes.

I like to use my bread machine because I do not have room in my kitchen for a Kitchen-Aid which everyone seems to like the best for mixing the gluten-free flours. I live in a tiny apartment and just about have room in my kitchen for my mixing bowls, etc. I keep the bread machine & use it in the living room. It makes a nice centerpiece! We are so cramped that we keep the extra baking supplies in the linen closet.

I also think that in Summertime, the small Breadman will not overheat my apartment like putting on the oven would. That's another problem as in summer my apartment gets very hot without the oven on. (I am on second floor).

Take care, Debbie 4/13/04

Early on, when everything was so overwhelming, when I baked on cookie sheets I just used parchment paper and so when I was done, I could throw the paper away.

Ryebaby, That is a good alternative, especially if you cannot afford to replace bakeware. Another thing is to line your cake pans with foil. This should keep the gluten particles from getting to the gluten-free foods.

God bless,

I just wanted to say that I use one set of pots, pans, plastic spatulas etc. all in good condition for gluten-free and not gluten-free cooking and after 8 weeks on the gluten-free diet my daughters TTG went from very high positive to completely normal. I keep a separate counter for gluten-free food prep, also butter dish and toaster. I think if there was contamination the blood test would not have come out normal, would it? I do use my dishwasher for almost everything and keep a very clean kitchen.

Thank you everyone for the info! I was really worried about having to puchase new cookwear. I just purchase a good set ($$$) and did not want to throw them away. Thank you for the advise on bread making and makers. I am really not sure how to handle it in my house. My kitchen is small and almost no counter space. But I will figure it out. I will however get a new toaster and wooden mixing spoons. Thank you so much... again!!!! This web site is a God send!

    • Hey guys,   I appreciate the input, you are all very sweet and kind.   I do not eat out at all. Only eat food I cook. No alcohol. Only certified gluten-free oats, grains, rice, etc. I have 3 roommates in a little house. I have my own gluten-free section to cook and prepare food but it only does so much. They eat tons of bread and drink lots of beer so it's everywhere. I find myself washing my hands every 30 seconds just to lower my risk. I bite my nails, which I know doesn't help.    And I will look into those magnesium and calming products, those sound nice.   i think yea, the biggest thing I'm looking for here is a way to minimize these symptoms that throw me off. I'm feeling a bit better today, but still extremely sluggish, with a crippling stomach ache.  I guess I'll aim for 7 hours of sleep. That makes sense, I think I need to prioritize that.
    • What was your gluten free diet like? I wonder if, when you were gluten-free, you went more whole food, less processed food? Or did you continue to eat processed food that was just gluten free? One reason I ask is that I have cut way back on grains and processed foods like gluten-free bread, but occasionally allow myself a treat which is a gluten-free biscuit southern-style from the gluten-free bakery nearby. There is no better sleeping pill in the world! I am knocked out. I’m not saying you’re not Celiac, I’m just curious what your diet was replaced with. You’re definitely reacting to something, and in a way you’re lucky to know what that is! Plumbago
    • Equal parts Hershey Coco Powder and a sweetener with a pinch of salt. Super easy to make your own.  I like adding a bit to my coffee with almond milk, and lakanto sugar free maple, or a bit of monk fruit or stevia. 
      PS you might want to drop dairy milk. The enzymes to break it down come from the tips of the villi in your intestines....these are damaged first. You can probably reintroduce in a few months but we normally suggest dropping it, and going to a whole foods only diet when first going gluten free. Welcome to the community by the way here are some useful links.

    • I was just diagnosed yesterday via lab testing and was quite shocked.  I have been looking for gluten free replacements for things as I am a definite bread-lover.  I have been using the Non-Sugar-Added Nesquik every day since long before it the name change from Nestle's Quik and just checked the label this morning.  I does say "May contain wheat"....not that there may cross contamination, but since i am so new to this I don't know if those are essentially the same thing.   I guess I will need to be a little more strict in the beginning and then try adding things back in a few months that may not be definite offenders.   If it doesn;t work, I will have to find a substitute.  I did find Carnation Breakfast Essentials Light Start is Gluten Free, but much more expensive for using every day.  But apparently almost everything gluten-free is if it is not naturally that way.....
    • If I get cc -insomnia will manifest as one of the symptoms and knock me off sleep schedule. I also get fatigue. I have multiple symptoms. If diet and personal care under control , environmental or new exposure event? Are solely In school/classes or are you on rotation or observation in field? Are you handling or dispensing  any meds for patients that have gluten in it?. Even if gloved are you sensitive to airborne "dust " pharmaceutical med or Otc meds with gluten filler even when pouring can possibly effect you in my opinion. Maybe gloves/mask would help. Just a thought. Good luck.
